  • Primary antibody notes Pineal gland Serotonin N-acetyltransferase (Arylalkylamine N-acetyltransferase, AA-NAT) is an ~23 kDa protein which is the rate-limiting enzyme in melatonin synthesis. Melatonin serves as the hormonal signal of the daily light / dark cycle, or body clock. The nocturnal oscillation in enzyme activity ranges by 10- to 100-fold depending on species among vertebrates. Studies have shown that AA-NAT is regulated by cAMP at both the mRNA and protein levels. AA-NAT has putative protein kinase A (PKA) sites at Thr 29 and Ser 206. Phosphorylation of AA-NAT at these residues might play a role in protein inactivation via proteasome-dependent degradation.

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab3439 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Notes
WB Use a concentration of 0.5 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 23 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 23 kDa).Can be blocked with Serotonin N-acetyltransferase peptide (ab4975).

By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~23 kDa protein representing phospho AA-NAT in rat pineal gland whole protein extract.

Target

  • FunctionControls the night/day rhythm of melatonin production in the pineal gland. Catalyzes the N-acetylation of serotonin into N-acetylserotonin, the penultimate step in the synthesis of melatonin.
  • Tissue specificityHighly expressed in pineal gland and at lower levels in the retina. Weak expression in several brain regions and in the pituitary gland.
  • PathwayAromatic compound metabolism; melatonin biosynthesis; melatonin from serotonin: step 1/2.
  • Involvement in diseaseDelayed sleep phase syndrome
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the acetyltransferase family. AANAT subfamily.
    Contains 1 N-acetyltransferase domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    cAMP-dependent phosphorylation on both N-terminal Thr-31 and C-terminal Ser-205 regulates AANAT activity by promoting interaction with 14-3-3 proteins.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm.
